learned about the tax agency's efforts to target conservative organizations during the 2012 election cycle. we'll have much more on the president's remarks and the fallout from the irs's enemies list scandal over the course of the next hour. now, meanwhile tonight the white house has released 100 pages of emails related to the benghazi talking points. now, republicans have been asked for this informsto be made public for quite some time as they continue to investigate who was responsible for editing these documents. now, you may recall that the white house has denied making any substantive revisions prior to susan rice's appearances on the five sunday talk shows, but is there anything in this unexpected document dump to prove otherwise? our very own james rosen has been scouring the emails has the answers. james? >> these emails raise a number of questions, but already appear on their face to contradict statements by white house press secretary jay carney. here's one of them. >> the only edits paid by anyone at the house were stylistic, nonsubstantive. they corrected the description of the
this for such a long period of time before the election? >> look, go back and look at every democratic senator who was writing letters demanding that the certainly revenue service inspect carefully all of these groups. there are a lot of democratic senators who are part of the pressure to do this. look at the george sorrus funded organizations on the left. they were demanding the internal revenue service do this. go back and look at the president and vice president's hysterical language, smearing and then attack being these groups. i keep reminding people, this is an administration which refuses to profile terrorists, even though 30 out of 31 of the top fbi-wanted terrorists all have the same terrorist sticks but you can't profile and tell you about it because that would be inappropriate. but they were profiling words like patriot, constitution. it is unimaginable how corrupt the irs had become culturally by this left wing bay as toward conservatism. >> you told about how they will go after those seeking the truth or seeking answers. strategically, and you often think strategically, what do you re
gotten to the bottom of this before the election cycle ran out. why, for the life of me, these committee chairman now are beating their chests and talking about the hearings they will conduct, why for the life of me they didn't do it a year ago is very troubling. i'm going to tell you why in my humble opinion. because it involved the tea party. and the republican party is no great cheerleader for the tea party and other conservative groups. so they were relatively dismiss i have. they fired off a few letters and asked a few questions but they didn't really conduct an aggressive focused investigation to get to the bottom of this. >> shouldn't they have been, mark, we have constitutionally protected rights, the freedom of speech, freedom of association. your letter went into great detail the questions they were asking these groups, which now we have now discovered were based on political motivation. this sounds to me like an enemy's list. so why didn't they do their job? because like benghazi we should have gotten to the bottom of before the election. i think that's a good point. >> it was
the election. what is that 19 month period we are talking about? >> well, part of that was when we were providing information, the data and answering questions that i have is never been asked before when i was at focus on the family we have a 501 c 3 and 501 c 4. no one ever asked what are your opinions and how will be they expressed and what are you trying to accomplish by expressing your opinions. they really didn't want me to deal with public policy issues. and that is why they gave us a hard time. so it was 19 months from beginning to when we he finally got it -- when we finally got it, i think about three weeks ago. >> sean: amazing. there is a headline story on drudge tonight that there was a prolife group that was asked about the content of their are prayers. what is your reaction to that? >> i think that is what is behind all this. there really is an effort to silence and to keep especially conservative christian organizations and tea party types of organizations from having a voice. from being heard. and so they harass, they intimidate, they do whatever they can to keep you off
have goten to the bottom of this before elections cycle ran out. why, for the live of me these committee chairmen are beating their chests, why they drnlt do this a year ago is troubling and i'm going tell you y because it involved the tea party. the republican part gee no great cheerleader for the tea party. so they're dismissive. they fired off a few qlerts, asked a few questions but they didn't really conduct an aggressive, focused investigation to get to the bottom of this. >> shouldn't they have been, mark, we have protected the rights of the freedom of speech and association. your letter went into great detail. the questions that they're asking these groups we have now discovered were based on political motivation. this sounds like an enemy list. so... why didn't they do their job? this is a good point. >> it was an enemy's list. it had only one enemy, conservatives and tea party. the chairman, camp, i believe his name is of the house ways and means committee put out a statement about this hairing they're going to have on friday. and it's very genetic and they're go
. then this case. they are targeting tea party members. we danny hear about it love the election, they cover-up benghazi before the election and now the situation with the associated press. it seems to me that the obama white house has some real explaining to do about their behavior. >> i think that is true, but i think that the media needs to be looking in the mirror or, as well. for example, the tea party and other conservative groups have been complaining about unfair targeting by the irs for the last three years. the press ignored them. given that if it was low-level aids, just people in cincinnati doing this and they didn't really have any political acumen, then it wouldn't have been hard for a reporter to pick up the phone and find out or for white house communication to find out if there was a problem. >> we already know washington d.c. knew about it. >> i know. >> let me ask you a question. i would think that all of these things really bother you in terms of the irs intimidating people because of their political point of view. >> i agree. >> benghazi, four dead americans and we did n
